Three Sentenced To Prison For Jewel Of Medina Arson

“Three Muslim men were jailed today for an arson attack on the home of the publisher of a novel about Aisha, the child bride of the prophet Muhammad. The trio poured diesel on the front door of the house in Islington, north London, and set it on fire. The attack in September last year took place days before Martin Rynja’s company, Gibson Square, was scheduled to publish The Jewel of Medina, by the American author Sherry Jones.”
